Summer appearances

Bangladesh has competed in nine Summer Olympic Games. They have never competed in the Winter Games.

In 2016, Siddikur Rahman became the first Bangladeshi to qualify for the Olympic games in golf,[1] and Bangladesh sent seven athletes to compete, more than any other year. The country has sent other representatives to the Games thanks to the wildcard process.[2] Bangladesh, with an approximate population of 170 million, is the most populous country in the world never to have won an Olympic medal.[3]

Bangladesh Olympic Association head Wali Ullah has stated that Bangladesh's weak economy accounts for its poor results in sports.[2]
